Creating Email Addresses

Getting Started with Emails

If you're just getting started with emails in WebAdMIT, we recommend you complete the following steps in the order listed:

  1. Add the email addresses you want to use with emails. These addresses can be used for carbon copy (CC), blind carbon (BCC), and replies.
  2. Create email templates that you can use for quick correspondence with applicants.
  3. Determine how you want to send emails directly to applicants from WebAdMIT (there are several methods you can use).
  4. Use WebAdMIT's Search Correspondence function to keep track of emails that you've sent.

Video Overview


WebAdMIT allows you to manage email addresses to use as carbon copy (CC) and blind carbon copy (BCC) options. Additionally, you can configure email addresses for reply-to communications, or send a preview of an email to these addresses. This feature is useful if you have an email account that you want to use for communications that isn't connected to an existing WebAdMIT admissions user account.

Once you create a new email address, it's available when composing an email.

The Email Addresses feature is available under the Management panel and access to this tool is controlled through Work Groups. You must have both the Configure Software and Email Applicants permissions to create and edit email addresses.
